Florida Technical College Lisa Valarde. Director, shady practices, unethical Lakeland, Florida

*Consumer Comment: You hit it right on the nose.

*Consumer Comment: WOW. I agree

Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

Main problem at this campus is Lisa Valarde the so called Director..she allows students that have NO business being there to be enrolled. No English? No problem. Convicted felon? No problem. 7 months pregnant? No problem, sign right up..sign your baby up to when it arrives! Can pass the simple TABE test? No problem. Does your dog, your goldfish, your pet lizard have a social security card? Send them to FTC, Lisa will admit them. She gets her entrance rates up, sits back and collects US government funds for the " education" of people who will NEVER pay back the loans.

Thank you FTC for contributing to the economic problems of the US.

Lisa Valarde you should be ashamed of yourself for taking advantage of the disadvantaged. This place is a cesspool of people who are not smart enough to know they are being had..SHAME ON YOU FTC.

You hit it right on the nose.

AUTHOR: Sarah Guler - ()

You are absolutley right about Lisa. She is the scum of the earth. I am a former graduate student from there. Let's just say victim. Those people lied to my face about every single thing. They are just as bad. All Lisa cares about is her money and taking advantage of all people. When I was going there she had full knowledge a student was sleeping with a teacher and condoned it. Sexual offenders and an attempted murderer were also attending the college. 

I cannot believe how stupid I could have been to believe the crap they said. I feel used and disgusted. I have a child now and no job because no one wants to hire someone who has a paralegal degree from Florida Technical college. 

I pray no one has to go what we went through. I wish nothing  but bad things to Lisa and her family.

WOW. I agree

AUTHOR: Brandon - (United States of America)

I could not agree more with the statements above. First of all that woman has never been ashamed for anything.  She has no conscious However, the only problem I see is that the only reason she is getting away with it is because she has the consent and/or protection from the higher ups. Meaning, the so-called Executives are fully aware of her practices and in some instances indirectly force her to continue. Also, do not forget that if Ms. Velarde would ever get into real trouble all she has to do is sleep with anyone in a position to help her. After all, how was she given this job?

Did she earn it? The only people that suffer are the students.  The employees suffer as well but there is not much that can be done until she is removed. But that will never happen she has too many lovers and a lot of information on most everyone above her.
